Comments Published on February 1, 2011 at 12:00 pm Facebook Twitter Google+ HARTFORD, Conn. –– There was no choice but to celebrate for Syracuse assistant coaches Lazarus Sims and Mike Hopkins. Emphatic chest bumps for each of Syracuse’s five on-court players were warranted.With a first-half buzzer-beating Rick Jackson hook shot, SU held its first lead in 133 minutes and 44 game seconds, up one over Connecticut. And to Syracuse’s leading scorer on the night, sophomore guard Brandon Triche, euphoria ensued.‘It’s like we won the Big East tournament,’ Triche said of the feeling at halftime. ‘Sixteen days — a long time of not winning. And just to have that feeling again is remarkable.’Sims and Hopkins knew what one bucket could mean for a team in a four-game funk: everything. Like flicking the XL Center lights off on the wealth of momentum the Huskies had.Syracuse never looked back. SU played an entire second half without relinquishing the lead. With it, what was a reeling No. 17 Syracuse (19-4, 6-4 Big East) entered back into national discussion, taking a 66-58 win from the No. 6 Huskies (17-4, 5-4) in front of 16,294 at the XL Center.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNot since the 13:44 mark of the first half in SU’s loss to Villanova three games prior had SU led. In that time, SU pushed its losing streak to four games, teetering on something Orange head coach Jim Boeheim never experienced in 35 years: a five-game losing streak.Sims and Hopkins only experienced a four-game losing streak once, combined, in their playing days with the Orange spanning 1989-96. In 1992, Hopkins and Boeheim lost four games in a row. With a win over Boston College then, SU resurfaced.With Jackson’s bucket, Syracuse seemed to come up for a season-changing gasp of air once more. Nineteen years later.‘I think the biggest thing was keeping our head above water,’ Hopkins said. ‘And thinking positive. Going into halftime with the lead just builds so much confidence within your team. That is why I was so excited.’The Orange pried the win from Connecticut via its domination in the paint. SU set up a foundation on the interior in a low-scoring first half, as Jackson grabbed 10 rebounds against the Huskies’ overmatched big duo of Alex Oriakhi and Charles Okwandu.And after SU starting center Fab Melo flopped again in the first three minutes of the game, fellow freshman center Baye Moussa Keita played the best game of his SU career. Moussa Keita was seemingly everywhere, playing 27 near-flawless minutes, hauling in 11 rebounds while amassing six steals and two blocks.Syracuse’s 2-3 zone — condemned for its play in the four losses — frustrated and suffocated one of the nation’s best players. Husky junior guard Kemba Walker had one of his worst performances of the season, scoring only eight points after entering the game averaging 24.2.Kris Joseph credited the top of Syracuse’s zone for Walker’s off night.‘The guards did a great job keeping the penetration to a minimum,’ he said.Another strong second-half scoring performance from Triche kept UConn at bay. SU played steady enough to coast the final three minutes of the game without Moussa Keita, who fouled out. The defense forced Walker into an ugly turnover in the game’s final minute.From there, there was only one thing left. In Dion Waiters’ first game back since not playing in SU’s loss to Marquette on Saturday — along with James Southerland — Hopkins didn’t end the game by celebrating with Waiters.It was back to business as the second buzzer sounded. Waiters and SU had accomplished what Hopkins did against Boston College in February 1992. The four-game skid was done.The SU team Hopkins led to end the four-game skid in 1992 went onto win the exact thing Triche compared Wednesday’s feelings to: the Big East tournament. It’s a goal this 2011 team is still aiming for. All thanks to the fact that SU finally crept above water with Jackson’s bucket to end the half.Said Hopkins: ‘Coach (Boeheim) kept saying, ‘You feel like you are 0-4. But remember we are 18-4, and remember and know that we are a good team.”email@example.com read more
Editor’s note: The article below is a fully republished story from Sept. 18, 1964. All errors and AP style mistakes are from the original copy.The Military Academy can keep its Bandits — Syracuse University has its Spiders.For those of you not up to date on the latest football fad in Orangeland, the Spiders are the first-string SU defensive unit.And here’s hoping that Hill fans won’t confuse the local Spiders with the Spiders we played last season, Richmond by name. The Orange “insects” reportedly have a bit more sting than their Virginia counterparts. Group members may be recognized by the spider and web emblems dotting the fronts of their helmets, with white streaks painted down the center.The Spider idea originated during spring practice and came to the fore at the start of sessions this fall.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textActual founder of the unit was Hal Rooney, a junior defensive back from Patchogue, L.I. Rooney acquired a tattooed spider on his ankle last spring and the name rose to prominence during pre-season practice.The Spiders include seniors Dave Archer, Gerry Everling, Dennis Reilly and Billy Hunter, juniors George Fair, Joe Dziekonski, Ron Oyer, Charlie Brown, Ted Holman and Rooney, and sophomores Herb Stecker and Paul Nettlebladt.Rooney, known as the “Black Widow” of the group, said the Spiders were formed merely as a way of pepping up the team. “We’re trying to get our defensive squad united, to keep the fellas hustling,” he revealed.Coach Ben Schwarzwalder had nothing to do with the creation of the name-tag. “It was said. “But anything that provides the spark, that makes them work as a unit is OK with me.”So the Spiders will make their debut Saturday. Let’s hope they snare some Boston College Eagles in their web. Comments Published on September 4, 2014 at 12:16 am Facebook Twitter Google+ read more
